US recording and motion picture industries join Internet2 consortium

Music and film bodies join hands

The US recording and motion picture industries have joined the Internet2 consortium, a non-profit consortium led by over 200 US universities and a number of corporate partners from the networking and technology business.

Internet2 aims to develop and implement advanced network technologies and to ensure these are deployed on today's internet.

The MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) and RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) have both joined as corporate members, presumably to develop technologies to prevent piracy while exploring the opportunities that Internet2 promises.


RIAA president, Cary Sherman, said: "We look forward to collaborative work with a broad spectrum of Internet2's members to develop new technologies that will enable us to produce and distribute digital content over next generation networks in ways that protect and enhance the value of creative works."


Dan Glickman, president of MPAA said: "The movie industry is committed to working with the technology sector to find innovative new ways to deliver entertainment to consumers."
